Kiteboarding Central Florida- Central Florida has some of the best Kitesurfing spots in the state. Many argue that it is the best Kiteboarding locations in Florida because there is every kind of riding. The area can offer great surf for wave riding, flat water slicks, long downwinders, exclusive boat access launches and warm weather. You can't find a better place to take Lessons. Check out our PHOTO GALLERY to see what we mean. There is a spot to ride for just about every wind direction in short drive. The temperature can vary depending on the time of year and wind direction. The Winter is full of chilly North to Northeast winds that bring large waves in the ocean and great flat water in the intracoastal waterways. A full suit should be enough to keep you warm. You may want to invest in some warm gloves as well for the winter months.  The rest of the year, the temperature is fairly warm and full of onshore seabreezes and strong southeast winds. Sometimes back door fronts can bring strong west winds.  The Banana River around Cocoa Beach and the Space Coast offers some of the best conditions in Florida. Spots that rival Hatteras and the Outer Banks can be found around the islands and causeways of this area. Cocoa Beach is probably the best spot on the East Coast to take lessons and is a quick drive from Orlando. The Banana River is not the traditional "river". It is a large SHALLOW lagoon that lies between Cape Canaveral and Merritt Island in Brevard County in the United States. It is part of the Indian River Lagoon system and connects at its south end to the Indian River.  Cocoa Beach is also known as "Orlando's Closest Beach!
